MNO and Canadian Geographic launch Métis edition of magazine
August 16, 2022
This August you will be able to get your hands on the latest edition of Canadian Geographic Magazine – which includes a feature article entitled “Rivers of Resistance” telling the story of Métis in Ontario. The article was written by MNO citizen and academic, Dylan Miner, with contributions from MNO citizen and researcher Courtney Vaughan and featuring the illustrations of MNO citizen, Alexander Young.
The issue is the result of a resolution that MNO citizens brought forward at our 2018 Annual General Assembly, as they expressed interest in a partnership with Canadian Geographic to educate about the culture, history and way of life of Métis communities in Ontario.
The magazine will include the history of MNO’s hunt for justice, profile Ontario’s historic Métis communities and the voices of several citizens from across the regions. The issue also includes a pull-out map showcasing the history of Métis throughout the province.
“We are very excited about this edition of the magazine,” said MNO President Margaret Froh. “Canadian Geographic is iconic in this country. This wonderful publication is focused on amplifying the voices of our communities and will help educate all Canadians about our rich history.”
The MNO-Canadian Geographic partnership doesn’t just end here. The MNO will soon launch a hub of information dedicated to the culture, history and way of life of Métis in Ontario. Stay tuned for more on that exciting announcement to come and look for copies of the special edition magazine at MNO’s upcoming Annual General Assembly in Toronto, Ontario.
